Goldberg Kohn Sponsors Scholarship for Hispanic Lawyers Scholarship Fund of Illinois

April 19, 2018

Goldberg Kohn recently sponsored a scholarship for the Hispanic Lawyers Scholarship Fund, benefiting Latino law students. Goldberg Kohn is sponsoring a scholarship for Francisca Wolfenson, a law student at the Loyola University Chicago School of Law. Francisca is passionate about advocating for immigrant rights and thus intends to focus her legal carer on immigration law. She has regularly volunteered for pro bono asylum and DACA petitions. Goldberg Kohn presented the scholarship to Wolfenson at the HLSF Scholarships & Awards Reception on Thursday, April 19th. Goldberg Kohn attorneys Sarah Griggs and Christopher Marquez presented the scholarship on behalf of the firm.

The HLSF gives law firms, corporations, and individuals a vehicle for supporting Latino law students, providing both financial support and networking opportunities. Each year, HLSF awards scholarships of $3,000 to first year Latino law students and $5,000 fellowships for law students who work for agencies such as the Cook County State's Attorney's Office and Cook Country Public Defender's Office. HLSF is especially proud of it's past scholarship recipients who have gone on to become leaders of the organized Latino bar and in other Latino communities.
